Description

Lucette is a contraceptive pill and is used to prevent pregnancy.

Each tablet contains a small amount of two different female hormones, namely ethinylestradiol and drospirenone.

Contraceptive pills that contain two hormones are called “combination” pills.

Uses / Instructions

Take one tablet of Lucette every day, if necessary with a small amount of water. You may take the tablets with or without food, but you should take the tablets every day around the same time.

Then take no tablets for 7 days. In the course of these 7 tablet-free days (otherwise called a stop or gap week) bleeding should begin. This so-called “withdrawal bleeding” usually starts on the 2nd or 3rd day of the gap week.
